declared across our entire area. doug kammerer right now is here to explain why we should keep a close eye on this one. >> the reason for this, jim, is not because we have a hurricane to the south. it's because what's going to be happening after. this right now, it says it's a hurricane, but most likely it's a tropical storm. but do not let that fool. the 8:00 advisory, i bet it will come out as tropical storm sandy, but it doesn't matter, don't let a weakening storm now fool you later. because this storm is going to continue to make its way up the coast. right now has winds of 57 miles an hour. that was the latest as of the 5:00 advisory from the national hurricane center, moving to the north at 7 miles per hour. it is expected to become a tropical storm most likely around 00, 11:00 advisory. the track is what you want to focus on here. the cone of uncertainty takes it anywhere from boston, to the richmond area and anywhere in between is going to see very strong winds. not going to be the rain, most likely not the flooding in our region, it will be the winds. let's take a look
phone. we'll continue to keep you updated right from this storm center. >> doug, thanks. stay with news4 as we track sandy onli, twitter and facebook, and right here on news4. >>> a well-known swimming coach who taught local athletes for decades was arrested today for child abuse. that accusation against rick curl, it dates back 30 years. news4's pat collins spoke to his accuser and was there when curl turned himself in. pat? >> reporter: at the montgomery county jail, a swim coach charged in a child sex case. it goes back to the '80s. the victim? one of his best swimmers. 63-year-old rick curl, a well-known washington area swim coach, leaving the montgomery county jail after he was officially charged in a child abuse sex case. a case that goes back 30 years. curl released on a $50,000 money bond. the victim, kelly davies kearn. i talked to her by phone about curl's arrest. >> i don't know whether to laugh or cry. i'm thankful. i'm sad. i just feel confirmation that what i did was the right thing to do. >> reporter: according to court documents, curl sexually abused the
even stronger today as it moves over jamaica and heads to cuba. doug kammerer has more on how sandy could have an impact on us here. doug? >> it really could have an impact on our weather as we make our way into the weekend and early next week. hurricane sandy with winds of 80 miles an hour, just off the coast of the eastern portions of jamaica right now. really hit that eastern side very, very hard. winds upwards of 80 miles an hour, with stronger gusts. trees down, power outages there. now it's on its way over toward cuba. video a little bit earlier this morning as it was making its way onshore. the incredible surf this storm is producing, we'll see it move up the east coast over the next few days. it will be in cuba, bahamas, florida, carolina also, and portions of the northeast. the potential is there for this to be a very dangerous storm. here it is right there. winds right now 80 miles an hour. moving to the north at 14 miles per hour. on that track, moves very close to miami, just off the coast there. and then right up the coast, staying offshore through most of this time per
the d.c. metro area to rehoboth beach. we begin with storm team four doug kammerer with the latest on sandy's track. >> we have the latest track out there chris, that track brings it very close to our region and once again, the forecast not real letter changing all that much. the forecasts have been very good over the past couple days on when this storm is going to be going. you can see where it is right now, just off the coast of georgia here, here's savannah georgia, it's due east of savannah georgia. it's still a hurricane. the national hurricane center thought this would be a tropical storm, it's still a hurricane, still holding on, we're seeing strong wind as long the north carolina coast line. here's the winds, 75 mes an hour. moving to the northeast at 14 miles an hour. it continues to strengthen. the track taking it back out and then right back into shore. very close to our area. during the morning on tuesday. that's when i expect this to be the worst coming up late monday and into tuesday. let's talk about that wind. that's going to be the biggest factor here, as we look t
in the rose garden yet and no one has told him, chris. doug is absolutely right. he's not good on his feet. his last few interviews have been aces a ters. he was terrible with david gregory. when paul ryan sat down with chris wallace, he was hammered on the absence of details in their plans. romney couldn't even handle bret bear from fox. they can't even go to fox when they go on fox nobody blows fox who is a republican except these two guys. so i think it's the prevent defense except he's not sitting on a lead. but he's behind in most of the swing states. he's behind in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, nevada. you know, i'm not sure this is so safe, but it's probably the safest course for him. >> well, i think bret bear is pretty good in that interview. one reason romney might steer clear of sit-down interviews, he's been barraged with questions about senate candidate richard mourdock. take a look. >> governor, do you wish mourdock would pull that ad? >> which way are we going? >> governor, do you disavow mourdock's comments on the rape? >> thank you. >> governor, do you disavow murdoch's comments
.com. veronica johnson and myself continuing to answer these questions through the 6:00 hour. >> thank you, doug. we hope you stay with storm team 4 for continuing coverage of hurricane sandy. we have complete coverage on news4 and keep us with up on facebook and twitter as well. >>> to the presidential race now. a marathon day on the campaign trail. president obama has just voted in chicago. she was in tampa, florida, at 7:00 this morning. and still has miles to go before he sleeps. the president is set to leave chicago in about an hour for a campaign affair in cleveland. there's a new "washington post" abc news poll that shows mitt romney edging ahead of president obama. 50% to 47%. the president made a stop in virginia today, northern virginia bureau chief julie carey spoke to voters there about who they think will win in november. >> you may notice that my voice sounds just a little hoarse. we are right in the middle of our 48-hour fly-around campaign extravaganza. >> reporter: by the time he reached bird park, the president's two-day fly-around to six battleground states
' doug luzader watched sandy slam into rewhoboth beach. >> he joins us live with a look at the conditions there. good morning, doug, how's it going this morning? >>reporter: well, not exactly drenched and not really all that windy at the moment. it's certainly a lot better than we've seen. and you see cleanup vehicles out here, some people are kind of going about their business. that's good news. the one sure sign i guess that the hurricane is over, take a look out there, there are actually surfers in the water here as they take advantage of what still remains to be some pretty big waves here. obviously not the kind of wave action we saw yesterday and not the kind of tidal surge that we saw yesterday. all in all it seems like this part of delaware did okay. we'll have to see as the sun continues to rise and we spend some more time out on the streets to see if in fact things are getting back to normal. but it's a much different story when you head farther to the north, atlantic city and then, of course, new york city dealing with that 13-foot tidal surge. i mean, that's going to be an iss
, doug. a big scare at a shopping mall after a man allegedly threw a cocktail inside the boston common mall. reaction from witnesses. >> reporter: tonight arlington police and the fbi are trying to determine a motive. this happened during the busy lunch hour. this video you're seeing only on news 4 shows arlington police taking a man into custody near the courthouse. someone called police saying he smelled like gasoline. he is suspected of throwing a cocktail inside the boston common mall. >> i was going down the escalator and all of the sudden glass just splattered all over town in the food court. >> about five minutes after that i saw police and bomb sniffing dogs. >> police evacuated the mall for more than five hours. >> a search was don for more devices. >> federal agents called in to sweep the area and found three more bottles near where the suspect dropped the first one. >> it was a device used in the commission of a violent crime. we're going to qualify it for what it is and charge them with possession and intent to use. >> no one was hurt. the fbi does not believe he is connect
the u.s. ambassador there. doug luzader is live. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the state department dropped something of a bombshell saying that they never thought that this attack on the u.s. consulate was part of a spontaneous protest. with the investigation into what happened at this compound in libya underway, there is now a clear rift between president obama and the u.s. state department. while many blamed the protests and discounted the idea that terrorists killed chris stevens, it's unclear what she was basing that on. the u.s. state department, that was not them. according to one official, that was not our conclusion. this as congress gets ready for some explosive hearings. >> what the state department bureaucracy distances itself from the liberal white house, you know the white house has a big problem. >> reporter: the white house denies there was a coverup. beyond that, more questions about security at the u.s. compound with documents showing well over 200 security-related incidents in the past 14 months. they will ask why the state department ignored some signs
's go to doug mckelway he is in delaware, resort place, affluent, a lot of big homes there what was the most dramatic thing you saw? >> bill, i would have to say the most dramatic thing i saw was the extreme contrast what we experienced to what people to the north of us experienced. over my shoulder across the delaware bay see the blinking of the new jersey light house as the crow flies that's only 17 miles away from here. a little bit north of that, utter devastation of the kind that jonathan hunt was just talking about. but here, we are on the south eye of that storm's eye. ill defined as it was. we got the back end of the storm, the westerly breezes. last night when the high tide hit at 10:00 p.m. those breezes were blowing westerly. they pushed the storm surge out to sea. everybody here in delaware woke up to houses and cities intact. one of the state authorities who controls beach erosion here said that beach and beach sand and beach dunes are meant to be extendible. the infrastructure behind them is not. go did they evacuate the beach. >> did everybody get out of there. >>
there. >> for sure. >> it's gotten a hole lot colder tonight, doug. >> it's chilly tonight, but nothing like what we saw last night. some areas were in the 30s by this point. >> it was so lovely out today, it was just a shock. >> it was quite lovely. awl across our area, not a single complaint as far as i heard, anyway, no matter where you were during the day today, you saw plenty of sunshine and nice temperatures. right now, still looking pretty nice. but doreen says it's cold outside. so let's take a look. you want to see someplace that's real cold? colorado. how about this. the first ski resort of the season opened up today. this is a basin. they call it a basin out there. it's one of the tallest ski resorts in the country. the summit? 13,500 feet. they have one ski resort -- ksk run open and one lift. that didn't stop hundreds of people from get k out there. they take their skiing seriously. for the record today, a low of 46. we ended very nicely. the record high, 86 degrees. currently sitting at 58 degrees. last night at this time, we were down around 52. a few degrees warmer. wind
're going to start with our storm team 4 meteorologist doug kammerer. >> we continue to watch this storm. it will continue to evolve. some of the latest information now changing the time period just a little bit. but it's not going to change the overall effects of this storm.
at a conference in 2010. doug mckelway is following it arrive in washington. doug? >> gregg, one of the features of that conference in orlando last year was the presentation of a parody film, a takeoff on the classic "patton." it was designed to motivate va employees. here's a snippet of the film. >> one of the worse mistakes you can make in carrying out your mission is getting the idea in your head that stability is a virtue. stability is not a virtue, it's a trap. it means you're holding your own, you're standing still. >> reporter: the film goes on with interviews of va employees and beneficiaries. it cost $52,000 to produce that little 15-minute film. it was shown only twice. yet that price tag is only a fraction of the cost of the overall conference. the va billed taxpayers over $5 million for the conference, that's more than five times what that notorious xsa conference -- gsa conference in vegas cost. what's more, just as with the gsa, the va inspect general's report found investigators were lousy at keeping track of their expenses. quote: >> reporter: a day before this damaging ig report
in texas. joining us from new york. doug, of course, good to see you here. "the rolling stones" cover has the president, you say, excessively cautious and perhaps a survival trait because at this time really nobody wants to make any kind of off remark to derail their own campaign. this was really the same kind of criticism that he faced when i covered him back in 2008. why do you think that he is so cautious right now as opposed to getting us a little something different? >> well, you know, it's -- he is very aware of the new media culture where any moment there's -- something is on youtube or an off the cuff remark gets picked up. i think he is cautious about that. i did my interview with him for 45 minutes in the oval office, and i try to get him on things, talking a little more about what went wrong in denver. that was kind of tough to do. when i switched gears and talked about history, about what he thinks about how the look at obama care, does he like the term, what would he call his policies put together, and he calls it the fair shake or thinks that that's okay. i was able to make
to come out swinging this time, doug. >> i think that is the consensus. to use the president's generally regarded lack luster performance in the first debate, coupled with the vice president's, some say overly aggressiveness in the vp debate the president needs to make a stronger case for a second term. the momentum is now with romney and ryan. the only way to block that momentum barring an obtain surprise may be for the president to decisively win tuesday's debate. >> i think he's going to be aggressive in making the case for his view of whether we should go as a country, and a country that is built around a growing, thriving middle class not this top down theory that governor romney has. >> there is one potentially very big obstacle to achieving that, however, this next debate is a town hall style debate with undecided voters picked by the gallop polls asking the questions with the moderator asking the follow-up. they tend to lean towards social issues, because citizen questioners often relate their personal antidotes or circumstances. to be aggressive in such a form can be off putting
: where is she and who is she impacting? ana is in long island, new york. and doug is in delaware and folks news meterologist maria molina in the weather center. >> brian: first of will be mar yampt you have the latest on the torm track and where is it headed. >> sandy is category one hurricane and bit stronger than yesterday. it is forecast to continue to strengthen and with maximum suspain -- sustained winds. it is it a large storm system. we'll not just talk about where the center will move. sandy spans 800 miles and so it has a little bit of everything. it has hurricane characteristics and making a transition to northeastern type storm. snowfall falling over the west virginia virge and significant snowfall will be falling. two-three feet. and factor that in with strong wind blizzard conditions are expected. that is in west virginia virge through wednesday morning and very heavy rain in the dc/baltimore area. that is it rates half an inch per hour. that is a bull's eye. the rain will continue today, tonight and even as tuesday and wednesday . many of you will see accumulation o
's squawk on the street david faber, and doug lebda. good to have you both onboard this morning. it seems to me housing always seems like a separate issue that maybe didn't get talked about as much. is that retrospectively incorrect? because it does seem so fundamental, david. >> it's fundamental in the economy in many ways. certainly helped us during the boom period in housing that we saw adding to gdp, construction, and so many other things. people refinancing their homes. it hasn't been discussed that much, you're right, particularly given that the president seems to have backed off a bit, perhaps, on a number of plans that would've relieved people from mortgages that they otherwise are not in a great position to pay but there was a lot of political opposition to that. but housing is starting to come back. we are starting to see real signs of not just stabilization but even perhaps some growth. doug can speak, i'm sure, to some more of the specifics about what we're seeing, but even new home sales, existing home sales, and prices finally have not just stabilized. >> steve rattner? >> t
